I’ve never witnessed a darts tournament like it! Just when you thought that the bar could not be raised any higher in the McCoys Premier League it gets blown away by some amazing record-breaking performances in Exeter.
It was a privilege to witness it. That man Phil Taylor led the way again with a record-breaking performance against Simon Whitlock. Phil’s average of 117.35 is a record for the event and the second best ever televised average. On any other day Simon’s three figure average would have secured him a victory!
The mercurial Gary Anderson demolished two times World Champion Adrian Lewis 8 – 1 taking up only 19 minutes on the oche in doing so and the resurgent Barney confirmed his renewed appetite for battle by turning round a 4 – 6 deficit into an 8 – 6 victory over “The Hammer”
James Wade, far too good a player to still be pointless after three rounds, put this to rights with an 8 – 6 defeat of Kevin Painter.
What a night!
